SEASON 02: BONUS EPISODE 07
10 Years Since the Boston Marathon Bombing
We have a very special bonus episode for you today. It’s been 10 years since the Boston Marathon bombing. An event that impacted so many lives forever. An event that caused the country to rally around Boston. An event that strengthened and united Bostonians like never before. We became Boston Strong. Today we are taking a minute to reflect back to that day in 2013, but also to tell a redemption story ten years in the making. Thank you for joining us for this very special bonus episode.
Our guest today is one of our Boston Moms Senior Contributing Writers. On Monday, April 15, 2013 at 2:49pm, she was volunteering one block from the Boston Marathon finish line; bagging food for hungry, exhausted runners. Fast forward ten years later, and our very own Kristen Douthit will be running the 2023 Boston Marathon on April 17. Proud is an understatement. We are so thankful to Kristen for making time to share her story with us between marathon training, work and momming her 3 kids.
About Our Guest
KRISTEN DOUTHIT is Southern by birth, but has called Boston home since 2008. Unlike most Boston natives, she still really loves the snow and cold. She and her husband have two energetic, kind sons (2013, 2014) and a sassy, smart baby girl (2016). Kristen jokes that she has a masters degree in laundry, and a PhD in child conflict resolution — which she uses far more than her actual physics and politics degrees. After seven years as a stay-at-home mom, Kristen went back to work full-time in 2021 as a program coordinator for a research lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. In her “spare” time, she runs her own business, serves on multiple alumni committees for her alma mater, and runs marathons. Her passion is seeing moms feel comfortable in their own skin and less alone in the chaos that is motherhood.
